PHEWWWW! That was something eh? Plenty unsold. Some sold for exorbitant amounts. Some major talking points, of course. The biggest of those will probably be Chris Morris becoming the most expensive player in the history of all IPL auctions. 16.25 big ones to the Royals! Safe to say we've seen it all today. And we don't know about you, we're still catching our breath here. 

Now is probably a good time to relax a little, have some dinner and retire for the day. We've thoroughly enjoyed bringing the event to you. We hope you've liked our coverage of the auction as much as well. We'll be back of course. Do join us when the IPL comes around once again. I'm certain it will be just as exhilarating as the auction, and we'll all be right here to bring it to you. Until then, this is Habil Ahmed signing off on behalf of Prasen Moudgal, Shashwat Kumar, Srinjoy Sanyal and the entire Sportskeeda team. Don't forget to wash your hands, stay safe, and tune in to Sportskeeda for all the news and updates from the world of sports. See ya!
